Jerviston Boys’ Club’s under-13 side made a little bit of history when they became the first team from the club to reach the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

They defeated Wolves BC 2-0 at Greenfield Park in Glasgow and will now face Tynecastle BC in March for a place in the final.

The rutted pitch meant Jerviston couldn’t get their passing game going and it took them time to settle.

Chnaces were few and far between but just when the first half looked like ending in stalemate up popped Steele to head an inch perfect cross from Hamilton into the net.

Wolves raced up the park but hit the bar with a free-kick and Jerviston remained 1-0 up at the break.

In the second half Wolves pushed for the equaliser but the Jerviston defence dug in, restricting them to long shots that never tested ’keeper Rolwich.

Jerviston always looked dangerous on the break and five minutes from time victory was secured when Reid who took the ball on a long run to the bye line and his low cross was turned into the net by one of the Wolves players.
